About This Event
Would you like to do something different this Easter? Perhaps explore an absolutely stunning area of the UK? Maybe nourish your mind and body with some relaxing yoga? What about great conversations over delicious evening meals?
If the answer is yes to any of these then you are invited on a four day Yoga and Hiking retreat in the heart of the stunning Devon countryside. By day we will explore majestic heights and hidden valleys of Dartmoor and in the evening we will relax with Chillout Yoga and some delicious food.
Our base is the comfortable and cosy Eden Rise retreat centre a few miles from Totnes, overlooking the hills of Dartmoor. All accommodation is either twin rooms or a stable style dormitory of 6 or 4 (see (contact info blocked) for details and a floor plan).
The hikes will take in the varied and beautiful landscapes of Dartmoor. We will explore hidden lakes, ancient settlements, stone circles, wild exposed moorland and magical lush valleys. You do not have to be an athlete to do these walks, but a basic level of fitness is needed, as each hike will be between 12 - 15 km over varied terrain.
The yoga will be accessible to all levels of experience and (in)flexibility. Whether you are a an enlightened yogi or a complete beginner, you will find it an amazing way to start the day and to wind down after the hikes.
I cannot wait to share the magic of Devon with you all!
Absolutely every element of this gorgeous retreat was beautifully lead and thoughtfully planned. Ben and Jen made the entire experience nurturing and nourishing, fun and deeply affecting. I was so inspired by their energy as individuals and as a couple, together they guided and supported each and every one of us through incredibly emotional and spiritual changes. Jen fed our souls and our bodies with gentle kindness and powerful passion, relaxed us deeply in guided meditation and Ben taught us wisely, guided us in amazing yoga sessions and shared his open spirit. They’re phenomenal! Eden Rise itself is a wonderful facility, located in a lovely part of Devon, that catered perfectly to the needs of the group so that we were all comfortable and relaxed. To be totally honest, it’s hard to put into words how completely amazing each bit of this retreat was and I have come away from it deeply relaxed, spiritually nourished, full of love, forever changed and with loads of fantastic new friends! WOW! Thankyou so much Jen and Ben and everyone who shared this gift of an experience! Lizzie xx
